A storm on social media platform arised, Outgoing United States President Donald Trump's permanent suspension from the microblogging site Twitter. The woman who spearheaded the move is none other than an Indian-American woman, Vijaya Gadde.

MAGA supporters have en-masse quit the Jack Dorsey-owned platform while others have been slamming the platform on Twitter itself for its alleged clampdown on free speech after Trump was accused of inciting the Capitol Hill violence last Wednesday. The suspension was led by Gadde, an Indian-American employed with Twitter.

Having moved to the United States as a child, Gadde grew up in Texas and worked in the Gulf of Mexico as a chemical engineer before joining Twitter.


Born in India, Gadde is part of Twitter's PR executive team and is also the company's Head of Legal, Policy and Trust & Safety. A corporate lawyer, graduate from Cornell University and NYU, Gadde joined Twitter in 2011 and has been working with Twitter for years and in 2014, she was named by Fortune as the only woman in Twitter's executive team. According to a report, Gadde has been helping Twitter shape its legal policies for nearly a decade now and was even present in the Oval Office during a meeting between Trump and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
